CT Catholic Men’s Conference
Saturday, 26 October, 8:30-5pm
Goodwin College, 1 Riverside Drive, East Hartford

TONIGHT: Theology at Bar (254 Crown St, New Haven, CT 06511) is a casual forum where young adults in their 20s and 30s, single or married, of all denominations and walks of life, gather in a local bar for 'straight talk, hard facts, and real answers' on our faith and how it applies to daily life. Confessions available during the talk.

Dan Norton is a Catholic apologist from Boston, Massachusetts. He has spoken to college and Theology on Tap groups throughout the northeastern United States. He is an award winning speaker and the former President of the public speaking club, Copley Square Toastmasters, in Boston. He has academic degrees in both philosophy and engineering. He received a MA in Philosophy degree from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio and a Civil Engineering degree from the Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston. As someone with an extensive background in religion and science, he is especially interested in the perceived conflicts between these two areas today.
